A Culinary Voyage Through the Peruvian Kitchen: 5 hours

Discover Lima's food scene like a chef on this curated experience. Accompanied by one of the hotel's expert culinary guides, you'll begin with coffee at a local roaster, Tostaduria Bisetti, where a coffee specialist will lead you in sampling several coffees made from different Peruvian beans. Thoroughly caffeinated, continue to Mercado Local de San Isidro, one of Lima's largest food markets.  Here you'll meet the vendors and learn about the dizzying array of produce, potatoes and fish on display. Sample a variety of exotic Peruvian fruits, savor some ice cream (Lucuma is the most beloved flavor) and then return to Hotel B for the hand's on cooking class.


Guided by the chef, venture into Hotel B's kitchen for instruction on how to prepare several Peruvian classics. Begin with a Pisco Sour and then work your way through the technique and craft of preparing perfect Peruvian Ceviche and Lomo Saltado. For dessert you'll prepare Crunchy Cherimoya which highlights a fruit from the Amazon sometimes called the 'custard apple."  After your hard work in the kitchen, enjoy the delicious lunch that you just prepared and toast your newfound knowledge of Peruvian cuisine.
